See OMEGAMON value quickly with new PARMGEN functionality designed especially to get your monitoring products running in 3 hours or less!
Check out many of PARMGEN's upcoming enhancements that embody simplicity and speed in maintaining your monitored LPAR runtime environments (RTEs).
Upcoming PARMGEN PTF UA73689 3Q14 Interim Feature (IF) brings significant improvements to the PARMGEN configuration tool. These enhancements cater to all users, whether you are a new first-time-user (FTU) in PARMGEN or whether you are an experienced subject matter expert. Let me highlight one of these features that focus on rapid deployment:
LOADALL cross-RTE command: Value: At least 50% savings in integrating new maintenance!
Quickly deploy SMP/E maintenance cross-LPAR RTEs using new LOADALL command. The new PARMGEN "LOADALL" cross-RTE command provides the flexibility to deploy maintenance more quickly across all your LPAR RTEs via a new composite KCIJ@LOD job. It takes just seconds to generate this job!
Alternatively, selectively deploy to a subset of your monitored LPAR RTEs, let's say to your TEST LPARs first, via a new "L" multiple RTE Load action next to one or more RTEs via one composite job.
SMP/E Maintenance Sample Usage Scenario:
Better yet, after you SMP/E-applied a number of OMEGAMON PTFs, why not LOADALL!
The new PARMGEN enhancements will be generally available with the recently announced IBM OMEGAMON Performance Management Suite for z/OS V5.3 and IBM Service Management Suite for z/OS V1.2 solutions.
